Starts week 11. I don't see the Bucs getting flexed. Our two biggest games are Carolina and San Diego. both of those are already in Prime time.

Starts in week 11, I could see the Saints game get flexed if they improve.

it starts week 11. The Carolina and SD game are already prime time. Only the home game vs NO is likely. At Atl is possible but the Falcons are due for a meltdown, IMO.

Guys remember that the prime time games we have lined up already could still get flexed off prime time. I don't foresee that happening with the monday nighter @ CAR, but it could happen with the San Diego if they aren't in playoff contention any more, which could happen.

Only Sunday nighters can get flexed.

Yeah, San Diego needs to pick up the slack. I think its good for our chances that they started out slow but they need to get going to remain in competition for a playoff spot. If their out by week 16 and we've got the division sown up, the game has little value to NBC.

Looking at some of the competition for that week -
Carolina @ NYG
Pittsburgh @ Tennessee
Philadelphia @ Washington
Buffalo @ Denver

Remember, Fox and CBS have the right to protect one of their marquee games, so its possible they may choose one of these.

If the chargers can get back into contention, NBC may just be happy with this matchup and not make the effort to flex it out.

Pitt at Tennessee is a huge game. We'll get flexed. Book it.

The SD game will probably not get flexed. Remember, NBC is broadcasting the Super Bowl and that will be a time for them to practice for the big game and advertise the stadium and get fans excited.

True. And Fox will probably protect the Philly v Washington game and leave the Car@NYG available. (2 big markets vs 1 big, 1 small market)

The SD game will probably not get flexed. Remember, NBC is broadcasting the Super Bowl and that will be a time for them to practice for the big game and advertise the stadium and get fans excited.

Good point.
